1966 Vent Window knob screw

The knob on my vent window is loose and I'm trying to figure out the screw that holds the knob on the shaft. Can someone tell me if it is a allen wrench and if so, what size? If it is a screw, phillips or straight? I just can't see in the hole what is holding it on.

Thanks

It’s a roll pin.

Re: 1966 Vent Window knob screw

I don't see an exit hole on the other end of the knob. How do I remove this pin or tighten the knob?

Thanks

Hi Jerry, look on the inside of knob (glass side) you will see the hole. Here are a couple of pics. I didn’t have a pin at the time I found a small nail and cut to fit. Hope this works for you.

With the knob in closed / locked position there’s a small hole on top. Drive it down and out from that end. Use a 3/4”-1” long - 1/16” diameter punch. Depending on who may have opened it before, there will be a couple wave washers sitting on the stud. The nut on the glass removes the clad stud. There is an offset plastic spacer in the glass that’s probably pretty fragile so be careful with that. The stainless cladding will polish up nice with 2500 / 3000 grit. Put a dab of white grease on everything when assembling so it all threads together and moves freely.
